in the ukraine. and really not to disturb the situation. it is important to point out that this group of gunmen who seized the parliament building in crimea at 5:00 in the morning, they raise the russian flag but this did not have anything to do with the russian state. they may be ethnic russians from the region. but on the russian side of the border, you have russia holding military exercises -- >> what will you look for early in the day? minister designate is expected to be voted in as the countries prime minister at any moment now. i think that what we really need to pay attention to is how the sky is going to raise $34 million. that is what they need to cover their liability for the next few years. this is not really too much money -- this is the guy who will have to cut the deal with the imf. he says he thinks they can avoid default, a haircut, maybe. it depends on the imf. this is the most unpopular prime minister ever because what he does -- whatever he does will not go down well in the country. >> thank you so much, in kiev. we have a great lineup for you, robert kaplan, ken feinberg, w
ukraine and whether in particular this situation in crimea spirals out of control. most of the experts that i spoke to, people in and out of government think it's unlikely he would actually intervene militarily in this case, and that they doesn't have a desire to see the company broken up. but things are definitely getting worse, not better. i do think we're in uncharted waters. >> absolutely, as indicated in jim' report in the actions today, in your piece you wrote -- putin's loss in ukraine may potentially be obama's game, but to turn the screws on putin, obama may have to assume more risk than he is willing to accept. elaborate on that latter part. >> well, look, to the extent obama may want to score some points on putin, and he may, because putin has made life difficult. he's been a strategic obstacle. they took in edward snowden. he had the obnoxious op-ed. this is a country on his border. this is a country where there are deep economic and social ties, and the stakes are higher for ultimate pianoen. he cares more. there is not nearly as much the u.s. can do. mainly the thing we w

reasons why the markets around the world are down today because of the ever tense situation in the ukraine. the country's acting president, the new president, is warning russia against any military aggression in its crimea region after pro-russian gunman seized a regional headquarters and parliament in that same area. nbc's jim maceda is live in moscow from where he joins us now. i guess, jim, the central question that people are asking is whether putin will observe the territorial integrity of the ukraine as president obama asked him to do by phone a couple of days days ago. >> reporter: it's a key question and one we can't answer yet, but he does seem to be setting up a situation of this increased pressure on this new interim government. keep in mind that in kiev, the interim government was officially voted in by parliament so we have the former economy and foreign minister known both to the u.s. and russia, by the way, now ukraine's prime minister and think about his first full day. i mean, those russian-speaking commandos carrying ak-47s and sniper rifles storming the crimean parliamen
katarina had a stark message for putin. >> leave ukraine alone. leave our people to make our future. >> reporter: the economic situation here really is very serious. the country's currency has hit a ten-year low. it has decreased by about 18% just in the last month. so those new leaders who were on this stage, they're going to be facing some very tough decisions here because the economic reforms that this country needs to survive will be very painful and very unpopular. clarissa ward, cbs news, kiev. >>> well, coming up on the "morning news," s.a.t. surprise. we'll see why your college entrance exam score from long ago might still be a factor with job recruiters today. >>> and unsteady steps. newly released video of justin bieber's sobriety test. this is the "cbs morning news." t anywhere you use sugar, you can use splenda® no calorie sweetener. splenda® lets you experience the joy of sugar without all the calories. think sugar, say splenda™ without all the calories. explaining my moderate to severe so there i was again, chronic plaque psoriasis to another new stylist. it was a

they will not use force to try and retake it at this time. they are trying to keep the situation calm, but it is a direct challenge to the authority of the new government here in ukraine. and in addition to all of this, there remains the question, what will russia do? the ukrainian acting president has warned russian forces, who have a naval base, a leased naval base in this southern region of ukraine, not to leave the base. and if they do, if they move beyond the perimeter of their grounds, then that will be interpreted as an act of aggression. so, clearly, the situation is very tense today here in kiev, a new government will be voted on by parliament and interim government. it now has a new crisis to deal with on top of the political and economic problems that this country has, christine. >> economic problems. the world is watching and talking about how the imf, the eu, the u.s. and, potentially russia, can try to help fill that $35 billion gap the country needs to fill. phil black, thank you. >> think about what phil's saying, there's a russian military base, a huge naval base in t
